Nadia + Brandon MacManus’s special wedding at Sanctuary Resort on sunny  March 5th, 2016 was everything a destination should be.  An emotional and intimate ceremony witnessed by palm trees, the soft and warm Caribbean breeze and a handful of family and friends on the grounds of the gorgeous Sanctuary Cap Cana Resort in Punta Cana Dominican Republic, and we were honored to document it.

You would think that the wedding was special because was celebrated just after Brandon and the Broncos won the NFL 2015 season although that’s not a bad reason but no.

On the bride’s words: Our wedding was special because we did not only celebrate for one day, but we were able to celebrate all week with the people that mean the most to us. Our wedding guests arrived Tuesday through Thursday the week of our wedding, so we were able to spend time with our close friends and family leading up to our wedding day.

With our large number of guests, it was almost as if we occupied the entire resort and it was one big party. This was nice for Brandon and me since we now live across the country from our friends. It was almost like a reunion, only everyone was celebrating with us.

Then come our wedding day, the party continued as we did not have to make our rounds greeting people at our reception like most couples must do because we had already seen everyone prior.  While it was a week-long party,  your wedding day comes and goes in the blink of an eye, it was really nice to have such great photographers capture moments from our special day to help us remember it forever.
